first glimpses of discipline

up at 5:30. A few deep breathes and stretches on the balcony. Whats it for, you ask??..Not sure . Could be some preparation for the snow sports or could be following the inspiration of a man of action.

Lessons learnt on Respect for the Aged Day

1: simple garlic and pepper steak > fancy fandango red wine steak
2: beer > red wine for day-tme, national holiday drinking.

Respect for the Aged Day

Third monday of September: Respect for the Aged Day (keiro no hi):
Respect for the elderly and longevity is celebrated on this national holiday.
Happens to be today. I will celebrate in true style: clean my room, wash the clothes, go shopping, etc etc.

shouyu cha-shu- onegaishimasu

one thing leads to another. The next minute you find yourself alone on a Friday night taking pictures of your dinner to satisfy the needs of a person living on the other side of the earth in the worlds most isolated city.

Firstly the venue

Secondly the main course

This wasn't nearly as large as it may appear, regrettably

Then the side dish

Another view of the side dish. The chunky wooden table adding to it all.

Today's order. Shouyu cha-shu-, with tamago as the topping.

keeping up with the Georgeffs

these were made some time ago during a work colleague bonding session. Spent most of my time taking the pics and not helping out but thats team work, 'aint it. No use having everyone doing the same job...

There were some appalling and/or laughable efforts at gyoza in there. As it turned out, after snacking away whilst preparing the 500+ gyoza there was little gusto to be seen. Let that be a lesson to you...

the original rock steady girl

unforturnately it is likely that only 2 people I know will get any real enjoyment from this post. I trust they will be well pleased.
